The race held in Zruč nad Sázavou was revived after an absence of several years in 2013 with the creation of the TJ Jiskra Athletics Club. At the time it was given the name Witches Run and was held in the Zruč nad Sázavou castle park. The following year, the race took place on the newly built athletics track at the town school as the park was undergoing renovation work. Unfortunately, attendance was low due to a large number of races held at around the same time within a limited area. For that reason we decided to move the race day to the first Sunday in May and gave the event the name "Zruč May Run". It was first held on 3 May 2015. With the help of the town of Zruč nad Sázavou, other sponsors, a large number of enthusiasts, an appearance by women's 800 m world record holder Jarmila Kratochvílová and the newly renovated castle park, the number of runners has increased.
